What makes a Maker?

 

Makers believe that if you can imagine it, you can make it. We see ourselves as more than consumers — we are productive; we are creative. Everyone is a Maker, and our world is what we make it.

Makers seek out opportunities to learn to do new things, especially through hands-on, DIY (do-it-yourself) interactions.

Makers surprise and delight those who see their projects, even though the projects can be a bit rough-edged, and at times, messy

Makers comprise a community of creative and technical people that help one another do better. They are open, inclusive, encouraging and generous in spirit.

Makers celebrate other Makers — what they make, how they make it and the enthusiasm and passion that drives them.
